With CES 2015 just finished, most of the users looking to buy a laptop are out perusing the newest models released. But before you sink your new laptop funds in the Dell XPS 13 or the Alienware 15, you should be making an intelligent and informed decision.
Even with unlimited funds for getting the best laptop, it?s important that you make the right choice. You have to examine your usage and the specifications you want. Not all laptops are created alike, and the options for customization are almost infinite.
A responsible buyer should do the following before buying the best laptop:
- Decide how big is acceptable for you.
Just because the best laptop weighs less than 2 kilograms and is as light as a MacBook Air?then it doesn?t mean that it?s the right model for you. You may have large hands or a small frame that some laptop sizes may either be too tiny or too large for you.
- Determine your usage plans for the device.
What should dictate your choice for the most optimal laptop first and foremost is your usage. Work laptops tend to be less powerful and more portable. Gaming laptops are heavier and need larger screens. If you plan to make your laptop your main computing device, you should consider getting something portable with the most powerful specs you can find.
- Determine your essential functions.
Media hogs might need the biggest hard drive on the model. You may require DVD drives or card slots if you?re into photography. Gaming laptops should have a lot of USB ports for the accessories that gamers need such as heavy-duty keyboards and controllers.
The true stars of CES 2015, as the event has finished, are the Dell XPS 13 for regular laptop users who want a good investment and the Alienware 15 for people with high gaming and media requirements. Laptops are slowly moving away from the traditional HD and are now forcing ultrabook-style SSDs on the best models.
If you?re looking for a laptop this 2015, the best options are out there, you just have to look and choose wisely. The best laptop for you fills all your needs and is easy to carry around.
